Coming off BCP... Staying on Spironolactone...

Recommended Posts

I've been on the bc pill (Estelle) for just under 8 months and Spiro for 3 and a half months... I plan on coming off the bc pill soon and just sticking with the Spiro (100mg a day).

My question is... Has anyone been in a similar situation and been able to remain clear whilst coming off the bc pill and staying on Spiro? I'm am really worried about this... I've heard some really devasting stories about women who have done so and had the worst breakouts of their lives... Many of them however were not also taking Spiro...

I told my derm I wanted to come off the bc pill and she looked horrified and was like "Oh no... no, no ,no... Just keep doing what you're doing". I asked if I increased my Spiro dose would it soften the blow of a major breakout due to fluctuating hormones and she told me it doesn't work that way... :(
